So, a few months ago, there was an article in my RSS feeds about a study on which web browsers are best at protecting your privacy. According to the study, Brave was the clear winner. Now, I had heard about Brave before, and while I'm not opposed to advertising as an idea, as a privacy geek, I'm very much opposed to advertisers tracking users' every move and targeting us with advertising based on our online activity. So I've been using assorted browser plug-ins to try to keep the snoops out. But reading that article made me think that perhaps Brave might do a better job at keeping the snoops out than Safari, even as locked down as I have been able to make it.
I'm still in the early stages of testing, but already I've discovered something that I had forgotten about Brave, and that is that it pays you for watching ads. That is to say, you collect these things called BATs, which you can either use to buy stuff, or else donate to content providers. According to Brave, I've spent 47% of my time on Brave visiting WikiTree. (Big surprise, right?) Therefore, by rights, I should be able to donate about half of the BATs that I acquire using Brave to WikiTree. But apparently, WikiTree is not (yet) set up to accept BATs. So, I poked around the Brave site and found a page to sign up a site to accept BATs. Is this something that could be added to WikiTree without too much work or disruption?
